    My wife cooked me parsnip and peanut butter chips tonight. Apparently she got it from someone else who says its a thing.

    I'm thinking about starting a food fad, and bashing out a quick cookbook. I can arrange some loose scientific validations.

    I've already come up with the following 'completely out there' ideas...

    Eat like a caveman (We can ignore a cave person's life expectancy).
    Eat nothing but meat (Needlessly cuts out the vego's)
    Raw diet (Needlessly cuts out anyone with taste buds)
    Eating solely from the Mediterannean (Might be a little unethical travel wise)
    Breast Milk POWER COLOSTRUM.
    Eat a whole crap load of very low calorie food.



    Edit: Seems the above diets have been done so I've come up with these alternatives.

    "Suck it and see" - If it fits through a straw, you're golden.
    "The Colour Diet" - only eat one colour a week at a time. This activates different components of the cytochrome oxidase pathway which boosts fat burning.

    Who's with me? Looking for investors.

    Have you seen the freak milkshakes in Canberra. Right up your alley with Nutella, brownie, cream and ice cream.

    We were there the other weekend. Hubby would have liked that if he saw it, but I don't drink milk and very little cream. I do love chocolate, but can't really eat too much of it and don't like it if it's too rich.

    Massive difference. I dont spend the evenings after work on the couch doubled over in pain any more. If you have any digestive issues then I highly recommend cutting out fodmaps. Monash university has done a lot of reseach on it.

    Hubby's on that one. He 'sees' a lot of food, and eats it.
